Lemon Cup Custard

Man, what a week this has been. I haven't posted anything since the last Tuesdays with Dorie listing because I've been sick for over a week, and really don't want to bake while ill with the chance of getting others sick. Fortunately, I made that last cake and these custards well in advance, so at least I can post these. This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was selected by Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles.

This custard is particularly thick, and rich with lemon flavor (I opted to follow Dorie's suggestion and added a couple drops of lemon extract), and the portions are just the right size that you can eat one, enjoying its rich flavor without later regretting it. I made six cups, but one of them didn't make it to picture-time. I may or may not have left it in my stomach.

Hopefully I'll feel well enough to bake more pretty soon and check out everyone else's cooking. As it is, I have a lot of recipes and pictures just waiting to be posted, so I'll try to update with some of those while I'm in recovery mode.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. There's definitely a bug flying around town.

The custard reminds me of spring!
